The Dallas Cowboys selected Wisconsin center Travis Frederick with the 31st overall pick of the NFL Draft. The Cowboys traded down from the 18th pick earlier in the night with the San Francisco 49ers. The two-time defending NFC West champion Niners gave up their selection at 31st overall to the Cowboys as well as No. 74 in the third round.
Frederick was a first team all Big 10 selection in 2012, starting all 13 games for the Badgers.
